Just got back from yet another great week at the Perissia. Our 8th!!!!... It just keeps getting better, the food is as good and varied as always, with excellent service. And thats without tipping in advance,....They are all so genuinely very friendly..
The animation team have improved so much since we last saw them in the New Year, and are all great people to sit and have a chat with, no matter what your nationality, they can speak your language..wonderful sense of humour from them all.
The jetty was still closed from the winter , but due to re-open next week.

The new walkway is briliant, bueatifully done, the Sandy beach restaurant is still there, with a new roof,,,, It now incorprates the beach bar, open till 6.00p.m. See the photos..

Cant wait to go back in September...

What can we say.....?? This hotel was far beyond our expectations. It was clean, tidy, and well equipped. The staff were friendly, professional and couldnt do enough for us. We were made to feel very comfortable our entire stay. The food and drink choice was excellent, you could never go hungry here! We particularly liked the patisserie, and thought that was a lovely idea. Also had a fantastic meal in the Italian a-la-carte, very tasty, and what a view! Beach outside the hotel was very good, clean and tidy, the beach restaurant had the best salad selection we have ever seen. we took a walk along the gorgeous promenade into Side, which was a very interesting place for both shopping and sightseeing. All in all, there is nothing bad we can say about this hotel, it was perfect. Amazing location, amazing food, beautiful sunny weather - a truly fantastic holiday. We would love to go back!

We (me and my wife) spend absolutely fantastic week in this hotel. Never imagined that all inclusive option can be of so high quality; I mean service and the hotel stuff, room and its cleanliness, food, pool and beach areas to name a few. Quality of food especially was a positive surprise; fresh salads and organic food, every day lots of choices that kept us satisfied. Beach restaurant was excellent choice for a "barbeque" lunch. Also the a la carte restaurants are same high quality as the buffet. We can also highly recommend the Wellness center, professional massage available there and reasonable prices, we enjoyed a lot.
Pool area is very nice and beach just in front of hotel, perfect location! The only issue was that bed was too hard for our preference, but we slept well anyway.
We actually plan to visit Sentido again and with our kids this time, still during this year. If you're after a carefree vacation, this is the hotel to go.

A very pleasant stay at a rather nice hotel. My girlfriend (although hopefully not for much longer) and I booked this hotel on a last minute deal online. We only booked a week or so before travel and were simply seeking some sun and relaxation in late April, early May and it didn't disappointed. The weather was fantastic and the hotel enjoyable.

In short, this hotel ticks all the boxes. It doesn't do anything badly although, to be brutally honest, it lacks a certain X factor. It's not a 5 star resort, but is comfortably a 4-4 1/2. The staff are generally very friendly and helpful, save for the few exceptions (but that's always the way).

The hotel has all the amenities that you would expect, 3 outdoor pools, one indoor, massage centre, one main restaurant, 3 a la carte restaurants,

We went all inclusive and the food is generally very good. Breakfast and lunch were good, dinner was more hit and miss. Sometimes very good, sometimes not so, although the choice of salad was always exceptional. The a la carte restaurants offer a better quality of food.

We paid for a room upgrade (costing about £40) and we were very glad we did, as we had a beautiful room which was very comfortable and with a balcony with a lovely view. Although we didn't go into one of the standard rooms, they didn't look as nice from the outside (no balcony and smaller). The only (major) issue with the room was the appalling air conditioning unit which seemed to make no different to the room temperature at all.

The hotel is a short walk to the (man-made) beach.

All in all, a nice, relaxing stay and would recommend. Does what it says on the tin.

We visited Sentido Perissia the last week of April, and were met by a fantastic hotel; clean and tidy, suberb cooking, and an amazingly service-minded staff. Most waiters and the pool manager (appointed Employee of the Year) were very humouristic and outmost effective. The location of the hotel is also fantastic; 50 m from the sea with private sunbeds on the beach. We felt very looked after, and will happily return to this hotel again!
Best regards,
Jörgen and Helena from Sweden

We had a fantastic holiday there were 2 famiies with 1 child each aged 2.5 and 1 so relatively young, we paid extra for the family suite which had incredible space with double bathroom and jacuzzi bath, the only downside was the doors locked from the inside but by pulling the handle down released the lock so for the little ones it was an easy escape, the balconies were safe with no gaps for children to lean out of and the waiters were exceptionally nice and very friendly to the little ones. Now they have built the path on the beach you can easily walk to Side town and also to KumKoy which is worth a visit. You are better off taking euros than lira as It means more to them in turkey than the lira and when haggling we just went in at half the price they were asking cheap I know but 9 out of 10 times we won, dont be afraid to walk away.

The hotel also rents out pushchairs to save you taking one with you, you dont need to take beach towels they provide them so saves space in the suitcase and you get fresh towels daily in your room. The bar in the room is filled up each day with soft drinks, water and fruit juices.

As soon as you arrive visit the concierge opposite reception and book in the al a carte restaurants or you will miss out the chinese was the best following by the turkish and then the italian (the fish reastauarant was closed) We were allowed to book these twice a week which made a nice change to the restaurant.

The internet access worked well especially for those having to work whilst away and although charges at x amount they were never really able to monitor it properly - so pay as you go!!

We would definitely go back

I stayed at this hotel with my Mum and 2 sisters (17&20), the hotel rooms were lovely, very clean and the food was great. The choice was never ending although sometimes repeated. We ate in the 3 restaurants that they had in the hotel and the Chinese is the best by far!! Due to the time we went end of April alot of the clubs etc were shut and they were quite a treck for my sisters anyway.
I can now see from reading the reviews before we travelled what people meant by not quite 5 star, there were certain things that let the hotels star rating down, I.e the treadmills in the gym were rusty and the stairs outside our rooms had peeling paint where the rain had got in. Although 2 days before we left new sun loungers were delivered so maybe they had just not got round to the exterior decorating.
The staff were all very friendly and if you tip one waiter at the beginning of your holiday they will generally keep your glasses topped up!
Room service was slow, and had to ask twice for some milk which was disappointing.
Strongly recommend Side Harbour, its 7 euros for a taxi, which are right outside the hotel.
Do not be fooled by the photographer!! 5 euros per picture, but he will do all he can to get 500 euros out of you, and he thinks thats a good deal!!
